Ellery Queen (1975)
Set in post-World War II New York City, the show closely followed the format of early Ellery Queen mystery novels where, before presenting the solution, a "Challenge To The Reader" was issued: the reader was challenged to guess the solution to the crime. In the series this tradition was followed by having Ellery Queen "break the fourth wall," reviewing key clues and asking the audience if they knew the solution.
The final act always used the time-honored detective cliché of calling together all the suspects, with Ellery Queen presenting the solution, except in one episode where the elder Queen too over, to the group - often disproving the solution proposed by whichever rival sleuth happened to be in that episode.
